Faigy joined our team last July as the first Community Development Administrator, was quickly trained, and then helped Samir and the many volunteers who make up the Faith House community keep Faith House running while Bowie was out on maternity leave in September and October!
She recently realized that she would need to take five classes in the fall semester and do a year-long intensive internship in order to graduate on time (keep her in your prayers!), coming to conclusion that she will need to step down from her work with Faith House on August 31.
Faigy has been a powerhouse this past year and has greatly increased our infrastructure, improved our social media presence and communications, organized financial data, coordinated volunteers, and this summer is building a new website!
In addition, she created our Community Database using SalesForce, the Shop in Good Faith portal, and Cafe Press store (where you can buy Faith House t-shirts, mugs and more!). She opened a new Facebook Fanpage, kept our Twitter and MeetUp accounts current, set up our new EventBrite RSVP system, responded to general email inquiries, and suggested Living Room topics and hosts, including Ari Hart and Chris Stedman. We look forward to launching the new Faith House Manhattan website she is working on now!
We are deeply indebted to her and will miss her. You can continue to reach her... or send her a note to say Thanks! through the end of the summer at firstname.lastname@example.org
